Today I planted a Calistemon -

I also divided and transplanted a miscanthus grass and irises (the boggy kind)

What about you?

The last thing I put down were peas 10 to 15 days ago. But wait til I tell you. These were marrowfats you soak overnight and boil the following day to make mushy peas. I put a small handful in a jar of water which I then kept in the kitchen til they sprouted. As they sprouted I stuck them in one of the raised beds over a period of about five days. I've watered the bed every day. Now here's a crazy thing. They all burst out today together. How come they did not come up at the rate they were sown?

In the teeth of a gale, we planted two regal Scots Pines, to symbolise our two (part-Scottish) grandchildren....and we staked them VERY well (the trees I mean!)

Some lupins, and delphinums to fill some gaps.

My brother gave me 8 Huckleberry plants. I am putting them in a raised bed this week. Here are some links that I found informative.

Is there much of a taste difference in the purple carrots..?

Would be interesting to see the looks on my family's faces if I served them up on a plate some day Smile
